NCI Clothing Drive Supports Eastside Community Ministry

NCI Clothing Drive Supports Eastside Community Ministry

The staff at Noble Correctional Institution (NCI) held a clothing drive to help people in the surrounding area who are seeking employment. In conjunction with Eastside Community Ministry (ECM), the staff at NCI collected clothing to be donated to the ministry’s "Work Clothes Closet". Eastside works with employers and job seekers in the area to provide clothing to individuals who are interviewing for or starting a new job.

Project coordinator Teresea Cox remarked, “Staff response was overwhelming, we had really nice clothing and shoes donated, to the point that we outgrew our planned staging area, which was wonderful. It was great to see so many people get involved in our effort to help people build a better life for themselves and their families.”
